In addition to these assignments, each child should read at least fifteen minutes every night, independently or with an adult, in order to practice the strategies we talk about in class.
District guidelines for homework in the second grade are 15-30 minutes per night. If your child is spending more than that each night, please let me know so that the homework can be adjusted accordingly. On the other hand, if your child is finishing the work too rapidly, please have him/her read, read, read!
